Making Track Changes more obvious


M

MKG

Is there any way in Word 2003 to make it more obvious that Track Changes is
obvious? We have a rather feeble user who somehow managed to send out a
document where TC was active. Apparently it wasn't tracking when she typed
in the document and the teeny-tiny TRK in the status bar isn't enough to
alert her.

Is there any way we can make it more obvious? A setting we can change or
lock on so that something will jump out at her?

Go to Tools > Options > Security and check the box for "Warn before
printing, saving or sending a file that contains tracked changes or
comments". You may also want to check "Make hidden markup visible when
opening or saving".

Demonstrate the warning and the consequences (!) of ignoring it.
